Quotes of Life
This lesson has presented itself many, many times. Never have I understood it so clearly as when my daughter confirmed it! It's not the pain she endured, but the people she hurt in the process.

"So this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad, and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be." I have never read the book nor seen the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but I'm sure that's about to change, for I certainly have fallen in love with some of its quotes.

Monsters inside your head.
f. scott fitzgerald
You can choose to live your life with unbridled joy and good humor like the occupants of the first car or the solemn rigidity of those in the third.

Enjoy the ride!
"I may sound old-fashioned, but I want to think all women should be treated like I want my wife, daughters, and granddaughters to be treated.
